For the gambling sports fan, there are few worse occurrences than a last minute goal to ruin your bet. In your mind the money has already been spent and then it all gets taken away.
John McKeown was the destroyer of many an accumulator on Friday night when he stabbed home a 95th minute equaliser for Cabinteely against Finn Harps.
Apologies to all the people who's bets I let down, shouldn't have backed against us in the first place ????????????

Cabinteely are not a club to miss out on a marketing opportunity though. Seeing that many were grumbling on social media, they have offered a tiny bit of compensation to those who lost their bets due to McKeown's goal.
Anyone who brings their losing slip to Cabinteely vs Cobh Ramblers on May 22nd will receive free entry.
Our late goal on Friday mess up your bets? We have you covered! Keep your losing slip for free entry against Cobh! http://t.co/TandfozAE5
